The aim of the Fund is to grow the amount you invested. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in higher rated bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) that are priced in British pounds. Higher rated bonds (as defined by international agencies that provide such ratings) are considered safer than lower rated bonds but typically pay a lower income. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above.
